Q: What's a tape?
Lets face it! The cassette is dead. So why, you ask, did we start this run of cassette releases? Well, we just love that 60 db dynamic range and natural tape compression and wouldn't want the "compact cassette" format to go down without a fight. Since the early 80s (when the evil industry stopped trying to push their inferior 8-track format), the cassette has done the yeomans work in laying down the foundation of this substantial underground experimental music community.
And its about damn time we paid it some respect. No more portastudios but at least we can compose sounds with the limitations of a medium in mind. The spectre of two lo-fi sides tames even the most harshly digital artist.
This series is intended to be listened to on cassette. But is being released in mp3 format for distribution here. Hey, who has a cassette deck anyway? Alas...
Planned for the near future are downloads of these files made directly from the cassette masters.
